Proofreading and copy-editing FAQS

“Emails will receive a same-day response. Short-notice work is welcomed”

How quickly can work be turned around?

 

Proofreading and copy-editing are tasks that require a flexible approach and fast turnaround times. Emails will receive a same-day response. Short-notice work is welcomed and I offer an ‘out of hours’ service to ensure your deadlines are met.

 

What are the differences between proofreading and copy-editing?

 

Proofreading ensures that:

 

■ typos and spelling errors are identified and corrected

■ punctuation and grammar are correct

■ references and content listings are accurate

■ word use and layout are consistent.

 

Copy-editing aims to:

 

■ improve the style and structure so that the text flows effortlessly

■ ensure the language and tone are appropriate to the target audience

■ raise content queries and offer practical advice.

 

NB: All copy-editing jobs include a proofreading service at no extra cost.

 

What formats do you work with?

 

I am able to proof and copy-edit on-screen in Word and PDF, or in hard copy using BSI proofreading symbols (or and agreed style of your choice).

 

What are your charges?

 

For proofreading - £7 per thousand words.

For copy-editing (including proofreading service) - £8.50 per thousand words.

 

NB: All copy-editing jobs include a proofreading service at no extra cost.

 

What payment methods are available?

 

I accept payment via Paypal, bank transfer or cheque.
